It feels wrong to come in as an outsider and say "You people should give up all the benefits you may get from this arrangement, so that your guy will vote the guy I want more often." That's for them to decide.
I'm hoping Avi pulls this off, but the last three weeks I've basically done nothing for the campaign, because of a vague sense of ill ease (and, well, because I've been busy)... and Pete finally verbalized it for me today, as we were driving down Inman St. towards Cambridgeport.

Just not tonight. I gotta go to bed. Got a rally runthrough to get to in the morning.
